You can Count on Dracula


** Please click on the pic for a clearer view 🙂 **

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Halloween Decoration.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

I wanted to make a rosette style decoration but I wanted it big!So after much head scratching along with a good measure of trial and error I came up with the solution…3 strips of 12″ x 4″ all scored every ¼” then joined together.Yay 😀  Count – Dracula by Crafty Sentiments Designs makes a perfectly spooky centrepiece too!He’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers and Black Soot Distress Ink has been blended around the edge.

Here’s a close look at him :


I found the fabulous freebie sentiment here.I twisted a couple of lengths of raffia together to create the hanger.The spider,would you believe,is recycled from an old pair of my DD1’s shoes and the buttons were snipped off a couple of garments that weren’t fit enough for charity collections then threaded with just the orange raffia.
